Residents have also called for his resignation.

Similar protests should be expected in the coming days and weeks throughout Jalisco state, but especially so in Guadalajara.

A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions should be expected surrounding any protests.


The governor recently announced a measure to raise the cost of public transportation tickets by 37.5 percent in the state, which he campaigned against prior to his election.


Individuals in Guadalajara are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
